Forget the Higgs boson's delusions of grandeur, the exchange particle that gives stuff mass appears to be something of a disappointment.
No, physicists haven't disproven its existence. And no, the Higgs boson hasn't jetted off to a Caribbean island, run up a huge bar tab, thrown TVs out of hotel windows and been arrested for getting into a drunken brawl - rockstar style. On the contrary.
Actually, it's looking more and more likely that the Higgs boson is kinda boring. In the words of Caltech cosmologist Sean Carroll, the Higgs boson is "looking pretty vanilla." He's not alone.
Decades of searching and a 7.5 billion Euro ($9bn) particle accelerator later, why is everyone so down on one of the biggest discoveries of the century?

This week, physicists descended on La Thuile, Italy, for the Rencontres de Moriond conference to discuss all things physics and cosmology. Scientists from the two main experiments - the CMS and ATLAS detectors - at the particle-smashing Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, Switzerland, were in attendance to discuss their much anticipated results on, amongst other things, the Higgs boson.
